Forever Friends

1 Corinthians 15:53-55 (NLT) For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies. Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die,   this Scripture will be fulfilled:  “Death is swallowed up in victory.   O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” I spent last evening in a youth service with grieving young people. The young girl killed in a horrible tragedy had touched many and her kindness rippled through the crowd as many shared of her character even at the tender age of 16. Their sobs racked my heart. Why God? The grief counselors from the local high school were there – all believers – they talked with some, embraced others tightly and prayed with those who requested it. I was moved by the Presence of God in the midst of such sorrow and heartache. Hugging her mother, I prayed peace and strength walking through this week into her new normal. I could


James 1:2-4 (CSB) Consider it a great joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you experience various trials, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing. I am a finder. A skill developed as a spouse and mother, I can find what is lost. With that, I have also discovered that I have the potential of a private investigator. Time and experience have taught me to retrace steps to uncover hidden clues forgotten in the panic of loss. It seems that whenever something goes missing my skills are immediately required. Are you a finder, too? Does it pain you to lose or misplace an item? Perhaps, your wallet, car keys, or cellphone. Will you search to the ends of the earth for that which seems long gone? I have “found”, no pun intended…okay well maybe, that the item missing is not too far gone but that fear of never finding it hinders one’s ability to locate it. In other words, t

Too Hot to Handle

DOUBTING GOD’S GOODNESS IS OFTEN THE FIRST STEP TOWARD DOING WRONG. Bible Reading of the Day: Read Genesis 3:1-6. Verse of the Day:  “No good thing will the Lord withhold from those who do what is right” (Psalm 84:11). Everyone in the family laughed at Danise, the baby. She sat in her mother’s lap, stretching and straining for the hot pepper that was in her father’s hand. “No, Danise,” Mom told her. “You don’t want what Daddy’s got.” The others laughed at the child’s insistence. Danise saw her father eating the yellow peppers and thought she wanted some too. “Why don’t you give her one, Dad?” Dionna suggested. “Let her have a taste.” Dad shook his head and screwed the lid of the jar full of peppers shut. “No,” he said, chuckling. “I know she wants it, but it would be cruel to let her have it.” “You could give her just a taste,” Dionna said. “Girl,” Mom said, shaking her head, “do you want your baby sister to cry all afternoon? If your daddy even touched Danise’s tongue with

A Lifetime Commitment

Bible Reading:  Mark 16: 15-18 Go  into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone, everywhere. Mark  16:15 THINK ABOUT THIS: Of all the commitments you will make in your lifetime, proba­bly only a handful will be for life. As a Christian, you have committed yourself for life to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. And someday you may say “I do” to one marriage partner for life. But these days it’s highly unlikely you’ll stay in one career for life. You might even live in different cities, states, or countries over the years. And you’ll be lucky if you have one or two friends who last a lifetime. But if you are serious about serving Christ from here on out, you need to under­stand one critical lifetime commitment he has called you to make. Everyone Christ has rescued and called to be his disciple is  also  called to be a rescuer and discipler of others. And just as he intends for you to be a  disciple  for life, he also calls you to be a  discipler  for life. Praying for others,
